Well, my great Saturday was followed by a completely out-of-control Sunday! I have a huge family and food unites us. We has a wedding party for a niece that eloped and there was a big table of all kinds of food.
Yeah, I filled plate after plate. Ate three brownies, a piece of carrot cake (my niece made it, so I HAD to taste it. lol) and a piece of marble chocolate cake.
Then I continued the compulsive eating until I went to bed last night.
What was different though....is that normally I would just take my falling off the wagon as a sign of surrender and scrap the whole healthy eating plan. But this time, even as I was eating, I knew it wasn't over. I knew I would wake up the next morning and get right back on that horse.
And that's what I did.
Also, something that was different, was that I didn't beat myself up, call myself a loser, over one day of not having control. I knew I had the strength in me to come back from that.
And I did. I woke up this morning and went straight back to eating my oatmeal (I love oatmeal for breakfast) and fruit. And drinking my water.
It's literally a moment-by-moment choice. Our whole life...not just being healthy...is chained together from one choice to the other.
Please continue to pray for me and I'll do the same for you.
Thanks again for all your support and kind words.
Have a wonderful, HEALTHY day everybody!
